These guys like to pretend they would have known better if they had been there but as far as most people knew, Jimmersonís gittup was state of the art.
Exactly. He was certain that he'd be able to keep Royce at bay with his jab & was certain that, with no time limits, he'd be jabbing the crap out of Royce's face & didn't want to screw up his hand. Hindsight being 20/20, he looks like a true Derp, but at the time, it was a wise move.
